As always, the Show and Shine organized by the Vernon L Nash Antique Car Club was a hit.
For some reason, the traditional wear for many women at Golden Days is a dance hall costume, which to my knowledge was not seen on the streets of early Fairbanks. The "Good Girls" felt the need to show our disdain for the "Good Time Girls," but the men seemed to approve of the latter.

The event also featured live music, free food and olde-fashioned games for children...
...and about $40,000 worth of gigantic gold nuggets to admire.
Of course, the highlight of Golden Days is the annual parade. This year Willy drove our 1919 Pierce-Arrow Series 31 touring car, which had the honor of carrying the winners of the Miss WEIO (World Eskimo-Indian Olympics) pageant. A great end to a fine week!
